I can hardly believe it, but it’s almost time to launch our Kickstarter campaign for Sing the Bible Volume 3 AND Sing the Bible Christmas! Ben Shive (producer) and I have already begun outlining song forms and it’s starting to get very exciting.
If you’re on our our mailing list, you know the theme for Sing the Bible Volume 3 – the life, words and mission of Jesus – and maybe you’ve even submitted a bible verse request.
We’ve received requests for well over 200 verses, and our goal is 14 songs, so we may not get to them all, but if there’s a verse on your mind, please type your suggestion in the comments. I wrote a song this morning (When You Give To The Needy – Matthew 6:2-4 ) from a request I received today! (I’m looking at you, Lauda Harmon of Charlottesville, VA!)
Here are the songs I’ve written so far for Volume 3, many from your suggestions.
I Am the Way – John 14:5-6
I Am the Vine – John 15:4-5
Sermon on the Mount/Beatitudes – Matthew 5:1-12
The Kingdom of Heaven (Parable Song) – Matthew 13:31-32, 44
More than Conquerors – Romans 8:35, 37-39
Bread Alone – Matthew 4:4
Our Struggle – Ephesians 6:12
Living Water – John 4:5-14
Jesus Christ is the Same – Hebrews 13:8
Get up! – John 5:5-13
Be Kind and Compassionate – Ephesians 4:32
When You Give To The Needy – Matthew 6:2-4
Our hope is to raise enough through Kickstarter to record Volume 3 AND a Sing the Bible Christmas CD. And if things go through the roof on Kickstarter… a classic Slugs & Bugs Silly Song CD.
But we’ll start with 14 songs that point to the life, words and mission of Jesus.
Stay tuned, and be ready to help us spread the word! We’ll announce it here on the blog as soon as we launch on Kickstarter!
